Good Monday morning. I hope you had a great weekend. I have a fun fall project to share with you today that has no stamping involved. I have had lots of fun creating fall themed cards lately and decided to make another by creating a wreath made with colorful punched oak leaves.
A while back I posted floral wreath tutorial on my blog using punched paper foliage and tiny paper flowers. Creating this leaf wreath followed the same exact steps. I die cut a ring with Nestabilities to act as the base and a guide for my wreath. I punched out several leaves in mustard, rust, olive and pumpkin and alternately attached them to the ring using Glossy Accents. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss an elegant pattern on the vanilla background and layered it over a mustard card base. I attached the wreath to the base of the card and finished it off with a mustard bow.
You may think this was a time consuming project but it was really fast and easy. You can create a wonderful Christmas wreath with a punched pine or holly foliage using the same technique. Here is a couple other views.
